May Reading Wrap Up

Despite starting out on a bit of a low note, May was a great reading month for me! I read a lot of great books. (Even though I only ended up reading one of the books on my May reading list). But I’m still happy with the eleven books I ended up reading this month.

For the most part, I enjoyed all of the books I read this month. My favorites were definitely A Little Life and my reread of Jane Eyre. But I think I’m happiest with having finished War and Peace and A Brief History of Time, both of which I had been working on for months.

I would love to hear what books you read in May – let me know in the comments (or link your monthly wrap up)! Keep reading to see all of the books I read this month.
